Ski Trip - Day 1


We made it! Safe and sound...
A huge snowstorm passed through the north east early this week and it scared us, as far as traveling to West Virginia goes... but it's cleared up and left us a thick layer of fresh snow on Snowshoe Mountain. We arrived around 5:30 this early evening and settled in our condo. Then went and stood in line to rent our skis and snowboard. Then we came back and heated up two of the three deep-dish pizza's that Kibbie made us (delicious!) and now we're just sitting around the living room visiting and listening to some weird french rapper on Marie's iPod she has introduced us to. (weird)
The place we're staying is nice. Very homey. The stars are so bright. And it's WICKED cold. I think 4 degrees right now, to be exact. We brought 5 sleds that look like garbage can tops and Wes and Cam went to try them out earlier and broke one completely in half when it hit a rock. Crazy kids. Not to mention all the 80's ski clothes we borrowed from family and friends. (thanks Beth and Jimmy) :) We'll take a bunch of pictures tomorrow to show you how awesome.
Anyways, ya'll keep us in your thoughts and prayers as we play on the slopes all day tomorrow and Sunday. And for our trip home Monday. It's supposed to snow again tomorrow, which would be SO fun...
WE LOVE SNOW!
Blessings,
Katie B.
